CityFest is…

CityFest is a movement about serving the city and proclaiming the Good News. Our vision is to see the Christian community come together in unity, service, and proclamation – showing the community-at-large the joy, peace, love, and grace of Jesus Christ.

First Baptist Church and 75 other churches are partnering with the Palau Association to proclaim the Good News. We are beyond excited to see God move in powerful ways as we serve and share the Gospel with our beautiful community. We are going to see the Valley change through the Gospel and love of Christ.

Take Action!

In 2017, over 13,000 people sought services related to affordable housing in our community. We are looking to create collaborative  solutions for  affordable housing for those who may already be homeless, as well as for those who may be one unplanned misfortune away homelessness.

We continue to listen to God’s guidance for other areas we can serve. Currently, we are partnering with Love INC, a non-profit organization committed to helping serve those in Central Lane County. They offer services like giving rides to appointments or small home repair projects. That is just a small portion of how Love INC serves our community. If you are interested in serving with Love INC, they would love to hear from you at or 541-653-8537.
